For Immediate Release
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Lexington, KY (April 19, 2017) – The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that the 2017 USDF Sport Horse Seminar will be held August 5-6, at Iron Springs Farm in Coatesville, PA, with USEF 'S' and DSHB 'R' Judges Kristi Wysocki and Susan Mandas. Comprised of both classroom lecture portions and hands-on evaluations, the sessions will provide valuable insight into four major areas; ideal movement and conformation of a sport horse, considerations when selecting breeding stock, show ring strategies, and competition rules and judging guidelines. Both instructors have a long list of judging credentials, and will each impart their vast knowledge in this personalized format.

Upon completion of this seminar, attendees will be able to spot the qualities desired in a sport horse and understand how to rate those qualities, which are essential tools for breeders, riders, trainers, and judges, as well as potential owners. Additionally, this seminar will serve as a prerequisite for becoming a USEF-licensed dressage/sport horse breeding judge.

Registration for the 2017 USDF Sport Horse Seminar will open through July 1, with late registration being accepted through July 21. For more information about the USDF Sport Horse Seminar, or other sport horse offerings, contact the USDF office at, or call (859) 971-2277.
